Review: JD Leonard releases soaring music project ‘Just Drive the Album’ (Includes first-hand account)

It opens with “Good Lord Willing,” which has an outlaw vibe to it, where the listener can recall Brantley Gilbert. It is followed by carefree, mid-tempo tune “Just Drive,” as well as “Close as We Can Be,” which has a neat groove to it.

Other noteworthy tracks include the melodically stunning “I Don’t Know Why,” the mid-tempo “Country Girl,” as well as “Rosewood,” which ought to be enjoyed for its beauty and simplicity.

After the bittersweet acoustic ballad “Truth Be Told,” the 10-track CD closes with the heartwarming ballad “She’s Never Really Gone” and the spitfire “And Justice for All.”

Just Drive the Album is available on iTunes and on Spotify.
